In addition, each emergency exit glass is equipped with a one-button automatic safety glass breaker. If an emergency occurs, the driver can quickly break the glass at all the emergency exits at the push of a button.

The 300 vehicles adopt DC charging mode. In fast charging mode, each bus takes 1.5 hours to fully charge. In slow charging mode, each car takes 2.5 hours and has a range of 280 kilometers.
